The changing DU student profile

Compared to 2008, Davenport University’s student profile has evolved.

“We have noticed some interesting changes in our student profile. More Davenport students are seeking bachelor’s degrees, living on campus, and taking online courses.  They are also more likely to be traditional-aged and have a higher GPA,” said Kathy Aboufadel, vice president of Institutional Research and Assessment.

“The intent is to provide reliable, easily accessible data for you to assist in decision-making,” Aboufadel said.
